Question: Upgrade On-Off Switch
I have a Delta 24-283 14" band saw with the original toggle on-off switch. I would like to upgrade the switch to something more obvious and safe. I've seen pictures of such upgrades, with the switch mounted on the vertical portion of the upper frame assembly; there are even two mounting holes that Delta put there when the unit was cast. Anyone have a good part number and source?

You may want to take a look at the Delta model number 28-276 parts diagram. On page B middle right, it shows the push button switch and all the hardware to mount it.
Hope this helps,
Question: Quantity Required
I have a Delta 14 Mdl. 28-243 Type 1 band saw. The eReplacements parts diagram shows only one spacer Ref #186, however, my saw requires four of these spacers. Is there something I'm missing here, or is it that the diagram is generic?

I'm looking as the ASC breakdown and it shows 1 spacer required.I don't see any service notes that show other wise.I'm not sure why you have four.Hope this helps.Good luck.
Question: Upper Wheel Axel Looseness
How tight should Part #26 (upper wheel shaft) fit into part #27 (hinge). On my friends 28-243 bandsaw it wobbles quite a bit. Is it pressed in? Is there something that holds it in place?
When I true up the blade the top wheel does wobble.

Did you ever get an answer to your question on the upper wheel wobble on your Delta
Band Saw? I'm having the same problem.
